Homemade Cinnamon Cranberry Sauce

Northwest Pearls: Cranberry Sauce A group of us had Friendsgiving this week. We each brought a side dish or drinks and met up for the dinner. One of my favorite Thanksgiving dishes is the cranberry sauce. So that's what I volunteered to bring.

For the recipe I used:

  • 4.5 cups of cranberries
  • 2 cups of water
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of cinnamon

I put the cranberries and the water into a pot and cooked them until the cranberries were popping. Then I stirred in the sugar and the cinnamon. I cooked it for a few minutes before taking it off of the heat and setting it on a different burner.  When it had cooled down a bit, I transferred the sauce to a serving dish and covered it before placing it in the refrigerator. It was good to eat then, but I had made the dish three days in advance so that when Friendsgiving came around, I could just pull the dish out of the fridge and go on over.

The dish was incredibly easy to make. I was worried about it because I'd never made cranberry sauce with cinnamon, but I heard a few of my friends compliment the dish when they didn't know who made it.
